Housed in historic buildings in New York’s Harlem Valley, the Wassaic Artist Residency offers artists a community in which to explore and expand their practices.
Our residents are contemporary artists, filmmakers, writers, and everything in between. They’re emerging and they’re established. They support each other, and we support them with visiting artist lectures, monthly artist presentations, studio visits, and 24-hour access to private studio spaces.
It all feeds back into our community. We open our studios at the end of each month. We keep all our visiting artist lectures open to the public. And during their time here, residents work for a few hours per month alongside Wassaic Project staff members. It’s a residency of and for Wassaic.
Wassaic Project 2018/19 Winter Residency Program
The Wassaic Project accepts 1 – 4 month proposals for our Winter Residency program (December 2018 – March 2019) for artists and writers.
The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers nine artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Residency seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art-making practices, while participating in a community-based arts organization.
Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, Residency Director, and professionals in the field. They will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
